Description

Three exciting figures from a new generation of writers will be talking about and reading from their work with Alex Clark, distinguished Guardian and Observer critic and Bath Literature Festival Director.

2018 MAN Booker Prize nominee Sally Rooney, Lisa McInerney and Anthony Joseph have already enjoyed considerable critical success and are clearly writers to watch in future.

Sally Rooney’s acclaimed debut novel, Conversations with Friends (‘Salinger for the Snapchat generation’) was a Sunday Times, Guardian, Observer, Daily Telegraph and Evening Standard Book of the Year. The novel has been longlisted for the 2018 International Dylan Thomas Prize, and shortlisted for the Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Award. She was the Sunday Independent Newcomer of the Year 2017, and the Books Are My Bag Readers Choice Award 2017. Rooney was the winner of the Sunday Times/Peters Fraser and Dunlop Young Writer of the Year Award 2017. Her second novel, Normalpeople, is published in 2018.

​​Lisa McInerney's work has featured in Winter Papers, Stinging Fly, Granta and on BBC Radio 4, and in the anthologies Beyond The Centre, The Long Gaze Back and Town and Country. Her debut novel, The Glorious Heresies, won the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction 2016 and the Desmond Elliott Prize. Her second novel, The Blood Miracles, was published in 2017.

Anthony Joseph is a poet, novelist, musician and academic. He is the author of four poetry collections, and a novel, The African Origins of UFOs. As a musician he has released six critically acclaimed albums. His seventh, People of the Sun, is released in summer 2018, alongside his second novel, Kitch, a biography of calypso icon Lord Kitchener. His epic, experimental novel, The Frequency of Magic, is due in 2019. He is the University of Liverpool’s Colm Tóibín Fellow in Creative Writing.
